Prevent a series recording from recording multiple networks

Not applicable

I have BlueSky and am frustrated by the PVR recording shows on multiple channels.  For instance I record NCIS (and others) on the normal networks.  I set the PVR to only record new episodes.  The PVR then records a LOT of reruns from the Crime and Investigation channel (CI) as they are listed as new on that channel.  My PVR gets loaded with shows I've already seen often as many as three episodes of each series in a single day!  I have to screen through the PVR and delete as many as 12 shows because of this.  Very annoying!

Is there a way to prevent this or can I just dump CI channel from my lineup.  I don't watch it anyway.

Hello islander2155 ,

We can definitely understand your frustration here! Unfortunately there isn't a way to restrict your recordings to specific channels at this time, but you might be able to remove Crime and Investigation to resolve the issue. It depends on how your package is set up, as it is occasionally bundled with other channels depending on the configuration. You can check in with the customer support team and they can see if that is a possibility for you. 

You can also report the guide error that is causing the episodes to be recorded as new here https://www.shaw.ca/secure/support/television/guide-errors/form.aspx

Has anyone been able to find a solution to this issue. I just got blue curve and this is extremely annoying. I have to go back and deleted 5-6 episodes of a show as it repeats on multiple channels.

 Am I misunderstanding the moderators solution of  cancelling programming or the fact that you cant record a specific channel ? Try this - find the channel that you want to record NCIS in the guide (should be set up already as a series recording) I have mine on 122 CIIDT Delete your current recording (press the D button) and cancel all future recordings. Make sure you are on the channel you want to record in the guide and click on it then click on Record in the sub menu - all episodes -  - should populate with most choices you will want. Choose New Episode only -move down to channels, arrow through the channels, there should be HD preferred, SD preferred or the channel the you are on in the guide, use that arrow back up - confirm and you should be good to go.

I just did this with NCIS, NCIS NO, NCIS LA, Bull and about 4 other programs - so far so good. 

Good luck and hopefully this makes sense?
